    No topics about V? With 2 Serenity stars...Maybe I missed a post.

    Anyway, 10 minutes into the show and it's ok.

    If you don't know about it ts a remake of the original series from 1982. It first came on when I was in first grade. The visitors are reptilian type aliens that came to earth and started using the humans as a food source. They brainwashed alot of the humans to work with them. as a rsult a band of humans known as the fifth column joined together to fight the aliens. there is just so much to the original series like the starchild that was a visitor human hybrid. Among the original cast was the the guy that stared in the original beast master movie Mark Singer and micheal ironside. From what i can tell this new one is different. they seemed to have changed the story a bit.

    They are still lizardly. The effects were ok, kinda Stargatish. I like watching Morena Baccarin, but some of the other actors were a bit cardboardish.

    I was hoping for more of a Lost feel, but, oh well.
    The ship that took the people to see the New York mothership looked really dirty. I don't know if it was just the shadows, but maybe they were trying to say something about dirty New York or maybe it was something about the V's. Dunno. Gonna watch next week, though.

    I'm gonna watch it too. I love the original series. It was one of my all time favorites. They had a v marathon sunday on scyfy channel where they showed episodes of the original series all day.

    I caught one of them. There was a sword fight with Mark Singer. When the swords hit the ground, they blew up. I didn't think the leader of the V's in the original was all that pretty, but on IMDB, she is all the rage in the forums.
    Watching the old series brought back memories of Buck Rogers and Batttlestar Gallactica...all those flimsy, shiny costumes and aliens who swordfight.

    I to watched the new V. When the original V was on I loved every single episode. They have changed quite a bit between the original and this latest incarnation. I enjoyed it even though Alan Tudyk died in the first episode .

    I never watched the new Battlestar.

    Loved the old V, loved both incarnations of Galactica (though the new one was better) and will be catching up on the new V when I get home. Can't wait!

    The show seemed a bit rushed to me. I guess they wanted to set the entire premise in the first show so that the series could take off without having to revisit one of the main story ideas (are they friends?) in each episode.
    One thing the show is missing is a clear main character on our side. Lots of characters and lots of talent, but who is going to be the main protagonist?

    I couldn't watch the premiere

    It's hard to bring yourself to watch a series when you already know the big reveal.

    I've never been to an event in Chicago. A few of my buds went to a star warsy con thing in Indy, though.

    Anyone could be a Visitor.

    It's on again right now. I like the show, but something is wrong with the main character telling her son to "not get invovled with the Visitors" and not telling him "don't get invovled with the Visitors because they just killed 40 people and covered it up, and then they sent a flying robit to chop my head off."

    I started to watch the second episode and fell asleep on the couch. Liked what I saw though. I will see the rest when CBS puts it on their website.

    The ending was ok. It did have a Lost feel. They play a single, resonating note right before they end. I think this would look better without interuptions and perhaps watching it on a dvd with 4 or 5 episodes playing consecutively.

    It'll be interesting to see when it comes back in March. i don't like the long hiatus, but oh well. I wonder how the invasion fleet seen at the end of the last episode is gonna figure into the rest of the story. Too bad Wash got himself killed (for real this time) again.

    Ya, I was hoping he would live a bit longer and kick some butt, but oh well. The last clip of the fleet was pretty cool. Earth has to get its game on in order to repel this attack. Unless they develop some super virus that kills all the aliens and my hopes of anything inventive happening during the storyline. I want to see fleet battles and blow up stuff.

    Never mind Earth's "fleet" consist of 3 20 year old space shuttles, a few Soyuz capsules and a very frail Space Station. I just wonder if the fleet is really the "V's" fleet, or someone else's. They could do like "Earth: Final Conflict" where the first set of aliens that got to Earth could be using the planet to prepare for the upcoming battle with another set of aliens. I guess we'll see starting in March.

    I think they all looked like the V ship, didnt they? Hmm, that would be interesting if there was a war with another race. I think they set up the first season for a later war with the V's vs the Humans and the V's to dont like being evil V's.

    It could be they are V ships, but as with anything Sci-Fi, the future has yet to be revealed. I'm looking forward to see how the V's interact with Humanity publically and covertly, and how the 5th column and their human allies deal with the V's and their human collaboraters
